Raider Men’s Soccer places 3rd in South, and locks up spot in NWAACC Playoffs!

With two games left to play on their league schedule, the Pierce College Men’s Soccer team have secured a third place finish in the South Region, and have locked a spot in the NWAACC playoffs.  This marks the teams third trip to the playoffs in the past four seasons.  The Raiders have compiled a 5-6 league record thus far (7-9 overall), and can finish over .500 for the first time since 2009. 

The Raiders suffered tough road losses in their last two matches, losing 2-1 to 2nd place Chemeketa CC, on October 20, and then dropping another 2-1 decision to division leading Clark, on a Penguin goal in the 89th minute (October 24).  The two well-played games proves that the Raiders are playoff ready, and set to make a lot of noise in the NWAACC playoffs.

Freshman midfielder Matt Solis continues to lead the Raiders’ offensive attack, with a team-high 10 goals, while fellow freshman Jay Williams has 6 goals.  The Raiders play their final two league matches at home, starting this Saturday (10/27), when they host the Lakers of Southwest Oregon CC, starting at 11:30 a.m., and then closing out the 2012 regular season on November 3, when they host Chemeketa CC.  Start time at 2:00 p.m.
